Back with another Conform-O-Meter installment! Recently I started breaking down what the Conform-O-Meter is and how it works. The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provide you with a bonus boost in your cash and XP from everything you collect in the game. When you achieve a 5-Star Town (its max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town. If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics, here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars and here to check how to Maximize your Consumerism Rating.
You can open up your Conform-O-Meter and check where you’re currently sitting with your Righteousness rating by tapping the stars on the bottom left of your main screen, while your in Springfield (Krustyland has it’s own Krust-O-Meter which you can read about here). When you tap on the stars this is what opens up:
Your Righteousness Rating is the 3rd option down on the right hand side. When you tap it it says “Keep criminals and graffiti off the streets”, piece of cake…er donut?..or is it? Your Righteousness Rating can be one of the hardest to max out, and one of the most frustrating!
Before you “have a cow” over your rating, let’s break down how many points you’ll need to max out your Righteousness Rating at all levels:
|1 Thru 10||3|
As you can see the higher the level you achieve in the game, the more points are required to maintain your 5 Star rating.
So what Helps Your Righteousness Rating?
So far in TSTO there are a couple of buildings and decorations that help affect your Righteousness rating in a positive light.
Training Wall: $270- 10 points (unlocks at level 33, can have multiple in your Springfield)
S.W.A.T. Van: $150,000- 10 points (unlocks at level 33, only 1 allowed in your Springfield)
Springfield Police Station: $40,500- 10 point (Also adds 1 point to Obedience. Unlocks at level 17, only 1 allowed in your Springfield)
Springfield Penitentiary: $46,000- 10 points (Also adds 1 point to Obedience. Unlocks at level 19, only 1 allowed in your Springfield)
So that’s only 40 points (if you only have 1 wall), what makes up the balance of the required Righteousness points? Well a few things actually:
-Spray painting your neighbor’s buildings (and having yours painted). Every building you “tag” causes your Righteousness rating to drop 5 points.
-Cleaning up your neighbor’s buildings (and your own) will raise your Righteousness rating by 1 point for every building you clean.
-Everyone’s favorite convict…Sideshow Bob (of course!) can impact your Righteousness rating. What did you think he was only in the game to annoy Bart? (and Bunny too!) When Sideshow Bob appears in your town, or a friends town your visiting, (10% chance of this happening) your Righteousness rating will drop 5 points. Every time you tap him and send him on his way? 1 point will be added back to your rating.
Righteousness is really a tricky thing in the game. With Sideshow Bob making appearances in your and your friends towns more frequently, sometimes this can really hit your rating hard.
The best way to get that rating high? Training Walls! The first addition to the game that impacts your righteousness rating and can be added multiple times. So when you start to see your stars dropping, add more training walls!
Hope this helps you all reach those 5 star towns!
